Quotes

  • Apparently, I'm very good at firing a gun without blinking, which is unusual. That's why so many action characters have to wear sunglasses during shoot-out scenes. That's my party trick.
  • If someone had told me years ago that sharing a sense of humour was so vital to partnerships, I could have avoided a lot of sex!
  • I think I like playing the bad girl. I like complicated. I like flawed, messed up complicated. It's more interesting.
  • I find a lot of things kind of funny and I often say what's on my mind, and then get nine texts from all my friends going, 'What's the matter with you?' But I haven't ever made a big attempt to have any particular image. And I don't really worry about it. If it's funny, I don't care.
  • As a mother, you feel much more vulnerable. And when you're vulnerable, you're a much better actress.
